Re: Bad Games You Have to Play

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (GBA). It looks like a suicide note written by the 32x, as seen through Youtube's lowest resolution. And then played at half speed. And challenge? If you figure out where the shortcuts are, it's almost impossible to lose. Really, this is bad by every single measure except...

Re: Retro-Bit Generations Plug and Play?

This is a great option for those who like to listen to games without the audio, and who don't mind the input lag. The weird collection of random titles is a great way to remember the 90's, back when there were libraries of roms to try in Nesticle, ZNES, and Genecyst, and nobody to tell you which one...

Re: Sega Genesis Classic Console (2016)

There were other permanent deaths from the era; it was just rare that a character with any potential was cut down. Phantasy Star, meanwhile, loved that trope. IV introduced us to Alys, who was strong enough to help out new players, while encouraging their growth. Of course her first instinct, when s...

Re: Am I the only one who thinks that the Neo/Scorpio is a terrible idea?

We're at the point where the average consumer is fine with the polys on screen, and any graphics upgrades are just minor performance/cosmetic enhancements.

Besides.

Prices will likely come down on the base hardware, and I'm in favor of whatever allows me to afford a ticket into the current gen.

Re: Games everyone loves, but you don't see them as great.

Link to the Past. World design? Second to none. You'll want to explore every inch. Soundtrack? Iconic. Graphics? Considering all they packed into a tiny cart? No complaints at all about the world of the marshmallow people. Gameplay wise, this is the height of the 16 bit era. Character wise, I've see...

Re: Things in Video Games you Hate?

Message to developers in the 2000's: Stop blocking paths with anything we can step on. Like a single sandbag. Or a field of grass. Also, a very important note to the developers of Golden Sun: don't build our house under a boulder smaller than it is, and then try to claim there's a prophecy about tha...

It's nothing like Pong, or any form of Tennis, for that matter. But you can see how it'd still be fun, back in the day. I'd love to play a version with a live grenade, instead of a ball. And rules to prevent either player from running out the clock.

Re: Things in Video Games you Hate?

Oh! Someone finally hates something I like! I love when characters die for storyline reasons. I'll listen to random conversations, good or bad, if they're entertaining enough. I want to get lost in a holodeck, and at this point in time, whenever anyone dies in gameplay, there's usually no weight to ...

Re: Things in Video Games you Hate?

The belief that being a good programmer/good game designer makes you good at everything else too. It was easy to ignore sloppy writing when a programmer added a paragraph or two in the instruction manual, but when half of Shenmue was Ryo repeating back what he'd just heard to the worst actors in the...
